Cerebral palsy diplegia and developmental behaviour issues
My daughter is 16, has cerebral palsy diplegia (using a k-walker for mobility), and has now self-referred as on the autistic apectrum. She has attended mainstream school and attained very well in her GCSE's, but has now hit a crisis with A levels, as she does not have the mental speed and flexibility to keep up. When her rules and capacity for ordered thinking is challenged, she goes into a panic state which often reaches a peak in screaming and self-harm. I could go on, but I would like to know if there's anyone else with similar experiences.
